Sarra Elgan first appeared on our screens in a popular Welsh soap opera. From here she seamlessly transitioned from acting into a hugely talented and versatile entertainment and sports presenter.
Having spent the last 4 years presenting on the Aviva Premiership at EPSN, Sarra landed a role presenting the Aviva Premiership for BT Sport. As well as this high profile role, Sarra will also continue presenting alongside rugby legend Jonathan Davies and top referee Nigel Owens on ‘Jonathan’. This rugby show is one of Wales’ highest rating chat shows on S4C.
Sarra also presents the LV Cup and The British and Irish Cup. She covered the Celtic League Rugby, S4C/BBC Wales for two years as well as the Rugby World Cup in 2007.
She presented Speedway on Sky Sports, was a CBBC reported for the Euro Cup in Portugal and also did some pitch-side reporting for Clwb Rygbi on S4C.
Sarra shifts effortlessly between entertainment and sport presenting and so her recent credits include 100% Rugby, 100% Fitness, Paparazzi, Ceri Greu on S4C as well as Bandit, a prime-time weekly youth music show.
This love of both sport and music has definitely influenced Sarra’s choices of work. She has been the presenter for Wakestock (shown on both S4C and Channel 4), as well as the ‘Cardiff Half Marathon’/ ‘Hanner Marathon Caerdydd’ for the last 3 years running.
Sarra’s long list of entertainment and music show credits include Top Of The Pops Saturday (BBC1), Pop Factory (ITV1 Wales), Pop Factory Music Awards, The Saturday Show (BBC1), The Saturday Show Extra (CBBC), Xchange (CBBC), Play the Game (CITV), Bump and Grind (Trouble), Dial-a-Date (ITV) and A Song for Wales.
Sarra is both beautiful and bright. She graduated with a first class honours degree in Theatre, Music and Media in 1999 and got her first break in TV later that year as a main character in the popular Welsh soap opera Pobol Y Cwm. Her popularity led to her being headhunted to present The Wrap for BBC Wales, Passion for Fashion for HTV, Planed Plant – a children’s programme for S4C – and Popty, a magazine music show where she interviewed bands and guests. Even when she was just starting off Sarra showed that she could handle a diverse range of presenting roles.
Sarra proved this even further when she turned her attention to radio. She hosted her own show for BBC Radio Wales and Red Dragon Radio.
She has also co-hosted the breakfast show on Radio Cymru (Radio Wales) in Cardiff.
Sarra is a hugely experienced live presenter where she in renowned for her professionalism, talent and natural initiative.
